Well, I’m about 2 1/2 weeks into blogging and one week into the 4 week NaNoPoBlano Challenge. And today I’m stewing.
I have about eight different blog posts started and I’m trying to decide which ones to actually finish and post.
I’m realizing that blogging is an art unto itself. There is certainly a learning curve in terms of what makes a good post and what doesn’t. I wonder to myself what would be interesting to other people. I worry about being sure that I’m not being self-indulgent. I’m trying to find the balance. And balance has always been both a literal and figurative challenge for me!
On one hand, I feel like I might be able to share some unique perspective and some not so ordinary topics such as… Living with disability, shamanism, the ins and outs of finding out that my biological father was someone I never met (Misattributed Parentage -this is becoming a much more common experience with affordable DNA testing) just to name a few.
I also want to use this space to uplift and connect people without sounding preachy or Pollyanna-ish.
This is me standing at one of those intersections where you can choose like 6 different roads to travel. At some point I’ll have to just start moving and hope that it’ll be meaningful or helpful or enjoyable for more than just me. And if I choose the road with inherent potholes, I hope you’ll buckle up and come along for the ride anyway.
So tonight I rest. Tomorrow I try to become more decisive about setting a tone….if that’s truly possible.
I’m glad you’re here 🌹
